ducats: ..no suggestion on a show, however you can download the complete set of the "Brandenburg Concertos" for free in either "flac" or ".mp3" format here:

Just FYI: Concerto No.5 is a great trip.

AshesRising, thanks for the link for "Brandenburg Concertos."

I always liked the 1st part of number 5(the Allegro)- it's my favorite of all Bach. The harpsichord gets really circular and weird after various buildings of tension. Then there's a resolution, after which Bach just goes back to skipping merrily through the forest.

This recording is decent, but my favorite recording of this is Christopher Hogwood leading The Academy of Ancient Music. It also uses original instruments but I think the bridge from the harpsichord circles is better, even if loosely interpreted. I think Bach as the soloist might have commanded the extra umph in improvisation.

spacedface: Your post provides me with tremendous joy. I try to pass along to others that which I have found or have been given; your post make me feel it was worthwhile to have posted it.
I agree wholeheartedly about Part 1 (Allegro)of No. 5 = exactly the section that you highlight. My favorite recording actually is one conducted by Martin Pearlman (early 1990's), also using original instruments, and he is the one who sits down at the harpsichord for that part. ==== One of the primary themes I hear is actually the core of the "Other One" --- I swear, it is in within that "circular" swirling section that you highlight.
Thanks again for taking the time to share your insight and suggestion.

I can't tell a lie (I'm a deadhead!) - I'm actually an atheist dressed as a Jew!

How come we don't have a Holiday??!!
